How about instead of relentlessly tweeting about it, players offer a REASONABLE solution.
We all know turf sucks, but what do they honestly want to do about it?
Are you serious? What are they gonna do, lay the grass down themselves? This is exactly what players should be doing, bringing awareness to the fact they’re being treated like shit because they’re female athletes.
You are fucking stupid if you think the players aren’t doing enough. They filed a lawsuit for fucks sake.
I’m saying they need to offer a reasonable solution for fans to rally behind instead of just tweeting about it. The venues were announced over A YEAR ago, and they wait until less than a year before the tournament starts to file a lawsuit, what do they really want to accomplish.
Canada was awarded the WC over 3 years ago, every large venue except for BMO has turf, WHAT DID THEY EXPECT?
How about you use your fucking brain instead of blindly listening to soccer players.
Yo I think you need to use your fucking brain. They filed the lawsuit now because they’re trying to ride the post-World Cup wave of soccer popularity, especially the popularity of the national teams. If they filed it when the venues were first announced, no one would be paying attention and no one would give a shit. Now, you have people like Kobe Bryant talking about how shitty it is to have a major tournament played on turf.
And what’s your idea of a reasonable solution? I imagine they want FIFA to lay down a grass surface over the turf. You don’t have to grow grass in a stadium in order to be able to play on it. Tons of men’s matches are played on a grass surface that is laid over turf. Sit the fuck down and stop saying they aren’t doing enough because short of buying some grass and putting it down themselves, this is all they can do.
Also, I loved being told I “blindly listen to soccer players” by a Thorns fan. Because most Thorns fans are just so smart and knowledgable about the game and don’t just follow the team for one player….
